Why you need the do-it-all dress in your life

Day, night, work, date... fashion's new favourite dress is about to become the hardest working piece in your wardrobe
Why you need the do-it-all dress in your life
Ganni are nailing the 9 to 9 dress

Have you ever bought a dress that you wanted to wear every day and every night and the only thing that's stopped you is the fear that you'd be subject to an aggressive amount of office whispering? This is exactly what's just happened to me when a dress as close to perfection as it gets winged its way into my wardrobe last week... and honestly, I've been getting separation anxiety every time we're apart.

Said dream dress is from Ganni, the Scandi brand that seems to be nailing this particular wear-everywhere remit right now. Mine is leopard print, but a jaunty motif isn't necessarily a prerequisite of the kind of frock I'm talking about. It helps, sure, but what's more important is that it's a wrap style, V-neck, furnished with a sleeve of some description and hits your mid-calf just so. 

I've been wearing mine over cropped jeans and feeling really smug and fashiony, and then donning cantilevered heels and taking my perfect dress to dinner. Bonus: it's a huge win in your wardrobe come Ramadan, too. 

Here are six of the best, and be warned - they're addictive...
